Modeler vs Real Deal...
#5
Couldn't agree more.

Besides the 2 weekends I spent attempting a 7 strang project, my real amps haven't really been used at all for about a year. I do everything in my DAW with more amp sims, cab sims, impulse responses, and VST/VSTis than I know what to do with. And to be honest, I can pump out some pretty nice tones every now and then. Especially when you have the same track pumping on 10 channels in your DAW, each with it's own amp, cab, IRs, and effects. That, "wall of sound," is pretty easy to achieve these days. Plus you can just pull up a preset that you saved 20 projects back, and be right on the sound you are looking for. You gotta love technology. But yeah, there is no comparison still.

I guess it was about 2 weekends ago, I was home alone, and really wanted to feel my nuts rattle. I ran the Windsor/800 into my 2x12, and used my ABY box to toy around with it and the Randall RM Combo. Not even close. Those amps still just have a gut busting punch and feel that the digital stuff cannot do.

It's a combination of everything. It's the guitar, pups, and electronics working like they should. The amp, both pre and power section. Tubes, cabinet design, speaker choice, and shear whoomp that comes with it. You just can't reproduce that digitally. It'll never be the same.
I hear Mexico is nice this time of year.
